OneNote 2016 is not going away

by Volker Weber

Over the past year, we’ve been listening to your passionate feedback and are humbled by your consistent love for OneNote. We hear you loud and clear — you want to keep your notes your way!

With that in mind, we’re pleased to announce that we are continuing mainstream support for OneNote 2016 beyond October 2020, so that you can continue using the version of OneNote that works best for you. New support dates for OneNote 2016 now align with Office 2019 (October 10, 2023 for mainstream support and October 14, 2025 for extended support). We also want to make deployment and installation easier for organizations and individuals, so for Windows users, starting in March 2020, when you deploy or install Office 365 subscriptions that include the Office desktop apps or Office 2019, the OneNote desktop app will be installed by default alongside Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If you’d like to install OneNote 2016 earlier, you can get it here:

Given earlier statements by MS stating that OneNote 2016 was dead and that the future was OneNote for Windows 10, we tried switching to the new version. We were amazed at how inferior a product OneNote for W10 was and quickly switched back to OneNote 2016. This announcement from MS is welcome news.

So bleibt mein kleiner Zaubertrick "Textsuche in Office Lens Bildern" und "Suche nach handschriftlichen Notizen" in den Workshops weiterhin drin. Damit kann man das Publikum immer wieder begeistern.

Sehr gute Entscheidung von Microsoft. Somit bleibt das Tool "Vorstands-tauglich"!

Gute Nachrichten, kann ich für mich sagen.

Ganz genau Joachim. Suche in handschriftlichen Notizen ist eines der besten OneNotes 2016 Features überhaupt. Funktioniert sogar bei meiner miserablen Handschrift so gut, dass man bei Vorführungen immer in erstaunte Gesichter blickt :)
